Below is our set list from the International Festival of Arts & Ideas in New Haven, CT, yesterday.
Special thanks to:
- The great festival staff and sound crew. Not just friendly, these folks went out of their way constantly to make sure we had a good show and a comfortable festival experience. Bravo!
- Tim H. Thanks for lending us your beautiful guitar!
- The Ebony Hillbillies -- We got to open up for this wonderful string band. The grown-up version of the Dees used to play swing and klezmer at the same venue as the Hillbillies: Stan's, a New Orleans-style restaurant in Brooklyn that sadly closed down. We never got to see the EHs there (our shows were always on different nights) but it was awesome to finally hear them last night. They killed it! http://www.ebonyhillbillies.com/
